All of this can be removed, and replaced with unconditional

void __user *arg = (void __user *)data;
int rval;

with an "rval = -ENOTTY" added in the 'default' case. This will
make it behave more like other drivers, returning -ENOTTY for
any unknown ioctl command, and returning -EFAULT for all
invalid pointers, including NULL.

xsdfec_dev_compat_ioctl() can removed as well, with the file operations
changed to an unconditional (removing the #ifdef)

.compat_ioctl = compat_ptr_ioctl(),

This will not affect behavior, it's just another simplification.
